US Dollars or Kenyan Shillings?

From the reviews which I have already read, I presume that the local safari companies take payment in US dollars.

What about the hotel, which is the best currency to take for the Smugglers Cove restaurant, beauty treatments etc – US dollars or Kenyan shillings?

Safaris will take your dollars but the kenya shilling is best for all other payments or you can put all hotel bills on your credit card -local shopping is shillings but bigger supermarkets take credit cards
